The Oddbins Take

It's rather pleasant down in Whitstable, if you can endure the 2-hour commute into the city it's a nice pace to life, on the Kentish coast. You can go to some mighty fine shellfish restaurants, if you're interested in the Battle of Britain you could go and see those weird sea tree-house things, called Maunsell Forts. You are also first in line if the Normans decide to invade again, it's been about 1000 years so we reckon they're due a conquest. If that wasn't enough of a reason to head east those Whitstablians have some fantastic beer! This pale ale is light-coloured, well-balanced and incredibly thirst-quenching. The perfect beverage, if like Geoffrey Chaucer, you plan on romping around Kent.

About The Brewery

The Faversham Brewery is home to Shepherd Neame, Britain’s Oldest Brewer. Nestled in the medieval market town of Faversham in Kent, brewing has continued on this site for centuries.

In 2004 the company undertook a major upgrade with the installation of a new keg plant and the opening of a new distribution centre. It followed that with a new cask packaging operation in 2007 and bottling line in 2009 respectively. Bobby Neame stepped down as chairman in 2005, with Miles Templeman taking the position, and retired from the board a year later. He is now Shepherd Neame's first Company President and has worked at the brewery for more than 50 years. In 2006 Shepherd Neame received the Queen's Award for Sustainable Development and was named the Best UK Family Business in the £25m plus turnover category of the Coutts Prize for Family Business 2009/10. At this stage, its estate comprised more than 350 pubs.

Using natural ingredients, such as mineral water from the town’s aquifer and local hops, Faversham brewers produce Kentish ales bursting with character and renowned international lagers. Beer is the world’s favourite alcoholic drink for good reason. For millennia, through a combination of art and science, the same four basic ingredients have resulted in one of the world’s most diverse drinks. Wherever you are, chances are there will be a local brew containing water, malted barley, yeast and hops.
